Uh . . . In a word, no.
In more words: not even close, though I have played enough Tetris Battle on Facebook that I’m out of energy and can’t play anymore (which is a relief, because if I was waiting for willpower to get me off the stupid game, I’d be there ’til tonight). I keep getting stuck between Level 20 and 21–but I digress. Where was I? Oh, right . . . Out of energy.
So I opened my planner because rather than actually get started, I figured why end a perfectly good stretch of procrastination when I can continue it by industriously planning to to start . . .
And what’s the first thing I see? The inspirational quote for this weekend:
“Romance and procrastination do not go hand in hand.” ~ Chris Howden.
I have no idea what Chris meant by those words exactly, but seeing as my current WIP is a romance and I’ve been stalling most of week, writing only in fits and spurts, it felt like pretty pointed commentary. Disliking being pointed at, not feeling inspired, I decided to turn the planner’s page. Surely better, sager, less mean advice would be there to motivate me.
What meets me?
“I’m a huge fan of my iPad, but the question remains: is it an incredibly useful piece of technology or the ultimate portal for distraction?” Noel Hudson.
Okay, fine. I can take hints wielded as subtly as a baseball bat. I’m getting to work now.

Oh my gosh… too funny! Thanks for sharing.
Now I’m off to get a coffee too.
Hah! The darned iPad is the ultimate procrastination device. But then again, if it wasn’t for the iPad, I would not keep in touch with anyone at all ever…
